have come from vine-covered cottages,

window ; or even from luxurious homes
desolated by commercial panics. As a

The inquiry showed that they belonged
to a set of Hindoo dissenters lately
founded in the Sumbulpore district, and
known as Kumbhupatias from Vio fact
that the followers wear ropes of bark
around their waiits.
They allege that their religion was re
vecled to sixty-four persons in 1661 by a
god incarnate, whom they style Aleknew
amy-that is, the Lord-whose attri
butes can not be described in writing.
They believe in the existence of the
300,000,000 of Hlindoo deities, but do
not respect their images, saying it is im
possible to represent a Suprene Being
whom no one has ever seen. They are
subdivided into three classes, two of
which renounce the world and make no
distinction of caste, while tho third lead
a family life. Their habits are said to
be very filthy, and, like some European
sects, they take no medicino in illness,
but rely solely on divino help. Their

prompted by.tie belief that if the Jug
